Membership to the FALCON Club (From A Little Comes Others’ Needs) is open to all individuals who share their commitment to the local community and high school athletes.
Throughout each football season, the FALCON Club accumulates statistics and other vital information about football players at local public and independent high schools. Its members select a Player of the Week, who is then featured in the local press. The club holds its Annual FALCON Club Football Awards Banquet at the end of the season. This event is attended by area coaches, award-winning players, club members and the local media.
